What's up with Drudge? *vanity*

Am I missing something here?

What's with everything on his page now in black and white?

On the bright side, at least the advertisements are still in color! :)

Yup black and white.

At least for now... let’s see if it lasts.

Matt sees everything in black and white. Fortunately, we can still see the advertising in color.

Since Blood Thursday I haven’t clicked on his POS LYING bias site that he used for his own deceptive agenda.

“What’s with everything on his page now in black and white?”

Color inks are expensive, black ink is cheap.

Heck of a reduction in file size. Maybe he’s tight with bandwidth? I wish the Blaze would get a clue...

Uh oh! He better put in a new ink Cartridge. Or maybe his graphics card doesn’t have full S-Video support :p

Yesterday the Walking Dead special was black and white, maybe he’s copying?

Sometimes black and white composition has more impact than color.

One of my favorite mediums is pen and ink.

It's black and white and read all over!

Well, I guess that works better when spoken, rather than written

Must just be a test to see if the advertising gets more click-throughs.. Then he can increase rates.

I think it will go back to color when we leave Kansas.

Seems like it takes a shorter time to refresh. The constant refreshes are annoying, and this time I got through the headlines with no refreshing.

On the down side, black-and-white is usually used to indicate something in the past. Now that trick can’t be used.

Shorter time to see all. Longer time to refresh? Got to learn the lingo.

Everything is in hues of gray to reflect our current state.

Wait til everything is in black, then you know it’s over...

LOL

I’m with you there. It is rare for his site to be following a story that changes every 30 seconds; he ought to up the auto-refresh time to a couple of minutes unless something major is going down. It makes it easier to read. However, I do have to wonder (not a web coder) if the constant refresh ups his page hits?

He wanted people to see the full impact that his page had in the original graphic novel.

Drudge has always striven to make his page the ugliest high-traffic page on the internet. Ever since he converted Lewinsky to lewinsky, a common noun.

Absolutely agree.

Maybe Drudge is trying to be the Ansel Adams of net info?

The only reason for the auto refresh is to increase the number of ads delivered to your screen, which is how Drudge makes his money. The refresh rate now seems to be every 3 minutes, I believe it used to be every 5 minutes.

I block the ads so I never see them anyway, on those rare occasions when I go to that site.

That swoosh that you heard was your post going over the collective heads....
.03 seconds of thought “who is adams?” - then on to the next posting.

But a great post all the same - His books sit on my shelves. :)

A subtle commentary on the media’s obsession with race? Everything is Black and White.
